The Adinkra design printed on one of the new fabric finishes in Remo's DESIGNER'S TOUCH graphic arts line, gives this shell the look of hand painted wood.

He believes in Unity, Peace, and Passion for playing and shares his joy with the world, whether on stage with Ben Harper or in a drum circle. Remo djembes are based upon the traditional drums of the West African Mandingo people, originating from the great Mali Empire of the 13th and 14th century. In Africa, one of the Djembe's functions is as a healing drum. Remo Djembes are based on the same traditional Djembe tone and form combined with Remo's modern advances including a wide range of tuning systems, heads, finishes and sizes.
